Statement by Bishop Liam MacDaid, Bishop-Emeritus of Clogher, on the appointment of Monsignor Larry Duffy as the new Bishop of Clogher
The people and priests of the Diocese of Clogher will have good reason to remember the Feast of the Immaculate Conception 2018. They rejoice today as they hear that Pope Francis has favoured them by naming as bishop one of their own, Monsignor Larry Duffy, PP of Carrickmacross. They pray that God will continue to inspire Bishop-elect Duffy to lead his people in loving God and neighbour, which he has done so generously and loyally over forty years of priestly ministry.
